bigger but dont necessarily move the country toward the higher tiers of the world economic structure Put differentlywill Chinese companies ever go from assembling iPads to fostering future Apples of their own orsimilarlyfrom selling knockoff copies of Western moviesmusicsearch engines and online apps to establishing Chinas own pop culture industries with worldwide profits and soft-power appeal Nearly every Apple product is made in Chinabut barely 10 cents on the Apple sales dollar stay with workerssuppliers or anyone else in the country The rest goes to designers and shareholders in the UScomponent makers in Japanmachine-tool makers in Germany and retailers or shippers around the world The problem for Amreica is that it disproportionately rewards the top rather than the middle of our income scale The problem for China is figuring out how to capture more of the rewards to begin with The profits of globalised commerce are skewed toward famous brand-name corporationsof which China has surprisingly few Its most creativedynamic firms are small subcontractorswhile its biggest companies are sluggish former state monopolies The challenge of creating a Chinese Apple has nothing to do with the insulting question of whether Asians can innovate Ratheran escape from the low-wage trap involves social and institutional innovations that may be easier for Chinese planners to identify than to put in place The societies that have produced the real Apples vary widelybut they share a few traits While they fall short of the idealthey aspire toward reliable rule of law They have intellectual-property protection regimes They recognise the legitimacy of independent media and university establishmentsandwith variationsthe importance of guaranteed spheres of privacy and free

says he wants to see 90% motorists wearing helmets Kevin Dsouza Top News Wearing helmets and seat-belts should be as normal as brushing your teeth every morning You shouldn’t have to think about it” says the latest expert brought in from abroad to train the Mumbai Traffic Police Visits to India and the developing world in general always leave Andrew Udall in shock The retired chief inspector of the West Mercia Police in England’s Midlands can never get over the erratic compliance of traffic rules “In Mumbai I’ve observed that a lot of people do not wear helmets but do stop at red lights In Bandung (Indonesia) it’s the other way around” he laughs In his capacity as a consultant for the Switzerland-based Global Road Safety Partnership Udall (53) has visited several developed and developing countries with the highest incidences of road accidents and deaths with India among them “For me the biggest shock in developing countries is that not many vehicles stop at pedestrian crossings In Mumbai Shanghai Bandung it’s the all the same You won’t see that happen say in London or Paris or Germany It is just a cultural issue but I don’t understand why it is like that in Asian countries” he says while speaking to The Indian Express Udall was in Mumbai last week for a three-day training seminar at the Byculla traffic training institute funded by the Bloomberg Philanthropies Initiative for Global Road Safety Prior to beginning training Udall visited Mumbai two years ago to understand the city’s road infrastructure and traffic management “I had to understand the traffic police’s command structure its funding what equipment it possesses whether it conducts drink driving operations and investigates accidents” he says In day-long sessions between Tuesday and Thursday Udall spoke about communication skills dealing with confrontation and checkpoint (nakabandi) configuration among other issues Most of his effort was directed at ensuring strict enforcement of existing rules and his number one target was compliance of helmet rule “I gave some global statistics about helmet wearing like the fact that you are 70 per cent more likely to suffer a brain injury during an accident if you don’t wear a helmet” Udall says He has laid down a standard operating procedure for traffic checkpoints which in the future will be manned by more police personnel “Officers are intimidated when a crowd gathers around a driver and they are outnumbered You need to have more people at checkpoints so that they don’t feel outnumbered” says the expert Udall is in favour of a no-tolerance approach by the police towards enforcing traffic rules “When I come back in five years I would want to see 90 per cent of motorists wearing helmets With strong enforcement I would like to see a reduction in deaths on the road” he says After 30 years in the West Merica Police Udall has seen senseless deaths closely “I’ve been in the sharp end in scraping bodies off the road It is a nasty messy upsetting experience You never get hardened as a traffic officer it is upsetting each time” he says For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsChennai:
